Here are a few picis of my beatifull new 18" Ragley TI Build to sit next to my Kona CC 1996 hotrod.

It comes in around 25.5lb at the moment including the mag pedals, just need to convert to a slightly shorter stem and 760 bars for hard hitting perfection!. Without doubt a future classic.
Spec:
18" TI frame
Mavic 819 tubless rims
Hope Mono Mini Pro Brakes c/w Goodridge hoses
Thomson Elite stem
Easton Monkey Lite CNT Bars
Raceface Evolve Double
DBR Mag 12 Pedals
Ritchey Carbon Seat Post
Fizic Gobi Saddle
XTR Shifters
XTR shadow Rear Mech
XTR Front Mech
Fox 32 Talas RLC 140mm forks
Finished with bits of Hope \ Nukeproof blingage!

Nearly :oops: , the frame is built by Lynskey in Chattanooga, Tennessee, one of the best titanium frame builders out there.

Oh thats it, Lynskey top hand built frame makers, i rekon that will ride even better than my Bluepig, thats my dream bike but cant stretch to a Ti as i think it would have to be kitted ouit with XTR like you have done as a Ti wouldnt warrent XT kit or SLX like i have seen on some.
Top build well done :lol: :lol:

or another way to look at it is if you can stretch to the frame...get some affordable slx on there and just enjoy your bike! i had a ti frame for 5years before i got a fork on it...then 4 years after that it finally got build because my brother did it as a surprise 40th birthday present! it's slx drive train (xt hubs) and ritchey parts. left to me it wouldn't be a bike now because i was thinking xtr/king/middleburn etc...i say get it built up to start enjoying the frame ...parts wear out...up grade. :) (ps..my first attempt to do a quote thingy in my reply...i'm totally without a clue computerwise!)
